Danish: Midt under brygningen af en Mørk Guld gik den ene af tre faser og alt hvad der skulle bruge tre faser (dampkedel, kompressorer, pumper) var ude af drift; akkurat lige som urten skulle ligge og koge en times tid. En af de vigtige processer under kogningen er opspaltning og uddampning af nogle svovlforbindelser som stammer fra malten. Når urten bare ligger varmt hen uden at koge, så sker der en opkoncentrering af disse spaltningsprodukter og medfører en grøntsagsagtig bismag. Hvad finder man på? Med fire gedigne timer inden fasens tilbagevenden var der rige muligheder for at blive kreativ. Løsningen blev et humle-overkill med de amerikanske sorter Centenniel og Columbus - og øllet skiftede fra konservativ tysker til flabet amerikaner. Johnny Cash’s A boy named Sue var ørehængeren under den fire timer lange pause og slåskampen mellem far og søn ude i ”the mud n’ the blood n’ the beer” blev symbolet på undertegnendes slåskamp med faser, svovl og humle. Det færdige øl er faldet yderst heldigt ud og hvis man er til humle, så har man hér noget at ty til. Passionsfrugt, solbær og grapefrugt er de dominerende aromaindtryk. Den kraftige bitterhed balanceres af en forholdsvis høj restsødme, som opnåedes ved at drosle gæringen ned i utide. Frisk og flabet.
